We love championing local businesses and My Craft Tribe is an excellent example.  Run by the super patient and oh so imaginative Cara, the company creates workshops for groups that can range from kids parties to hen do's to mindful 'Syjunta' gatherings.

Cara is beyond patient with both children and adults 😉  The workshops she runs in the Sussex area are suitable for all abilities from total novice to the true crafters.

But, it's not just workshops, you can also buy kits from the My Craft Tribe website which range from make your own wall banner to loom kits to make a macrame feather.  

Even better, she has created video tutorials to help you entertain both the kids and yourselves, especially when you're stuck at home!

Here, Cara has shared visuals of one of her fun 'at home' activities, created especially for us....(there's a full guide at the end).

 

DIY Kindness banner

Spread a little kindness and create a banner to hang at home, maybe in your window.

Cut cardboard into shape and write on the lettering. Make sure the lettering is not too close together.

Punch the lettering stitch holes through the cardboard including holes at the top corners & holes along the bottom. A knitting needle or pencil will do the job.

Paint the cardboard and leave to dry.

Thread your needle with thick thread or wool in a contrasting colour. Don't have a needle big enough? See my craft hack for this.

banner 4

Stitch the letters using a simple back stitch (watch my video if you are unsure).

banner 5

Add tassels along the bottom by folding the yarn in half, inserting the folded middle  through the hole to create a loop that you pull the ends through  (there's a video for this too on www.mycrafttribe.com).
